Liturgical Music

Liturgical Music

 If you are interested in joining one of our many wonderful music groups feel free to come by during a scheduled rehearsal time or contact Carol Ponder.

 

 

Chorale

Enjoy a spirit of caring and friendship together as the choir sings in four part harmony!  Although the ability to read music is not mandatory, it's a big "plus."  The Chorale sings at the 9:30 am Mass on Sunday as well as other various liturgies throughout the year.  All ages are welcome!  Rehearsals are Tuesdays at 6:30 pm.  (No audition is needed)

 

The Contemporary Choir

Young and not-so-young join together with a love of singing, fellowship and praising the Lord!  The music selections are Contemporary in style and accompanied by a praise band.  The Contemporary Choir sings at the 11:30 am Mass on Sunday.  Rehearsals are Thursday at 7:00 pm.  (No audition is needed)

 

The Resurrection Choir

The Resurrection Choir is a valuable ministry that provides music for funeral liturgies.  Singing in this choir is an excellent opportunity to be present and minister to the grieving family and friends at this sad time in their lives. The choir is open to anyone who wishes to join us.  Rehearsals are 30 minutes before each funeral.

 

Instrumentalists

To enhance our choirs, worship experience and special events, instrumentalists are an added treat for us!  You may choose to join one of the choirs, or play for our seasonal Masses on Christmas and Easter.  Instrumentalists are required to audition and have the ability to read music.

 

Cantors

Being a cantor involves much more than standing up and singing alone.  It involves making the assembly's prayer possible through song.  The cantor has the responsibility for any songs or hymns that require solo passages, leading the assembly in a recurring refrain, and inviting the assembly to join voices in hymns used throughout the Mass.  Cantors rehearse once a week.

 

Church Media Ministry

Please consider joining the Media Ministry!  It is a very rewarding experience to know you play an integral part in helping our Community worship together through the use of technology!  Media volunteers choose which Mass time works best for their schedule and serve one or two Masses a month.  When you volunteer for Media, you are still able to participate at that Mass, receive Communion and fulfill your Sunday obligation! Ages 15+

 

Hand Bell Choir

Come and enjoy being a part of our seasonal hand bell rehearsals as we prepare for our very special Liturgies of Christmas Eve and Easter! The ability to read music or previous experience playing hand bells is NOT required.

 
 Children's Choir

The children share together in music, prayer and fun.  The Choir sings once a month at a weekend Mass, as well as Christmas, Easter and special events. Weekly rehearsals are Wednesdays at 3:00 p.m throughout the school year. Open to children in grades 3-8.
